Auto Headlights in Premium?

Does the 2014 Premium have an auto-headlight function where the headlights come on when it senses lack of sunlight? There is a sensor on the far right of the dashboard that looks like the one from my wife's Hyundai, but from what I can tell you have to manually turn the headlights on. Thanks!

I'm pretty sure it does. My Premium XT surely has auto-headlights.

The 2014 Premium does not have an auto headlamp function. Other trim models do. Look in the owners manual and you will see that your headlamp switch does not resemble the limited and touring models that do offer the feature.

Right, that's what caused the confusion at first. I'm fine with the headlights not turning on automatically too. Man I really love this car.

Which kind of sucks because my '12 Premium did. Now the only thing that's lit up in garages/tunnels is the needles on the speedometer and tach. Boo!
